I Made the Cover!

I was getting ready for the quilt show in Lancaster, SC Friday when the Fedex truck pulled up in my driveway, my Quilts and More magazines had come with my project in them...imagine my surprise when I opened up the box and saw my humble little "Sweet Treat Pincushion" project on the cover! I am just so thrilled, and the magazine did a super job with the inside article too, great photographs and tips. I'm posting a picture of the cover below left.

The Lancaster show was great, too! I love visiting my quilting friends down there every year, I've been going since it first started and am starting to get to know those SC gals. I love the big round tables they give us, I took about 70 colors of Wooolfelt squares this year and "rainbowed" them around the table in front, glad to be able to help the girls find all the colors they need for their projects.

Have a Heart

Recently I vended a quilt show in Statesville, and as they were forecasting snow later that day and the weekend, everybody ended up coming early Friday, it was like one big quilting party! I saw so many wonderful folks I knew and met some new creative souls too, it was just a fun, very busy show. One very clever quilter from Kernersville, Glenna, bought a pattern and kit for my "Queen of Hearts" Pincushion at the show, and mailed me a picture just a few days later of her finished project! I believe she made it to celebrate her anniversary, at any rate I couldn't help but notice the "love puppy" figurines behind it. She's accented her heart with some great vintage buttons and needle packs in the front pocket, a decorative scissors pin "crown", and of course her "queen" sits atop her rusty throne! Thanks so much for sharing, Glenna, you can check out Glenna's heart in the photo below left.
